HC Deb 01 December 1955 vol 546 c239W
96. Mr. B. Harrison

asked the Minister of Education what percentage of the secondary school places in Essex are grammar school; and how this compares with England as a whole.

Mr. Vosper

In January, 1955, 17.9 per cent. of the 13-year-old children attending maintained and assisted schools in Essex were following a grammar school course in a grant-aided school, compared with 20 per cent. for England as a whole.
